Tinder guy #2. Let’s call him “Mike.”
I wake up on a Monday morning and check my phone. I have a message awaiting me on Tinder. I open it and read:
“While my wardrobe is in dire need…(My 2 pairs of jeans from B Repub are working overtime) I am such a sucker for a gal who dresses well. You look great. Hope your Monday is going well!”
Solid opening line. I’m impressed. I reply back:
“Thank you for the compliment 🙂 You should probably work on the jeans situation, but I the struggle is so real finding that perfect pair of jeans. I definitely get it. Hope you’re having a great day so far.”
We chat via Tinder for a while. Mike is interesting. There is something about him that I can’t quite put my finger on yet. He’s quippy and witty. He looks gorgeous in his photos. This man may be too good to be true.
After a while chatting on Tinder, he asks for my number so we can text instead. I give him my number and we continue our conversation over text. I find out he works in sales and is in the process of interviewing for a new job. He’s working on a presentation he has to give at the beginning of the next week.
He’s driven. He has a new job but he’s looking for something more lucrative. Points.
I happen to be off work for the next couple of days. If this guy asks me on a date, I’m saying yes. We’ll see what happens. For right now, I’m enjoying our conversations and learning about who he is. He was a marine, has a close relationship with his friends and family and he has a good job. He seems like a guy that has a handle on his life.
We’ll see how it goes…
